Description: This Guide identifies the required criteria for obtaining the optional notations for Container Carriers.
This Guide is for the use of designers, builders, owners and operators in the marine industry.
Container Carriers have grown much larger in recent years and the volume of cargo carried has expanded
significantly. Fires involving containers, especially with the volume of cargo now being carried, can
present a substantial risk to the safety of the crew and the vessel.
The requirements of SOLAS Chapter II-2 Regulation 10 have been revised in accordance with IMO
Resolution MSC 365(93) to address the risk and came into effect for ships designed to carry containers on
or above the weather deck, constructed on or after 1 January 2016. While the basic SOLAS requirements
are incorporated by reference in the ABS Rules for Building and Classing Marine Vessels (Marine Vessel
Rules), this Guide has been developed to provide for further enhancement of the fire-fighting and fire
protection capabilities for cargo areas of Container Carriers beyond that required by SOLAS.
Release Date: September, 2021
